The Law Society endeavours to keep Lawyer Lookup as up-to-date as possible. However, the information contained may not be the most current information available.
Lawyer Lookup pulls information from the Law Society databases regularly. A lawyer's status can change at any time. Contact the Law Society at 604.669.2533 or 1.800.903.5300 (toll-free within BC) / TTY 604.443.5700 to ensure you have complete, up-to-date information.
Lawyer Lookup includes discipline history information from September 2003 onwards only. If you are interested in the discipline history of a lawyer in BC prior to September 2003, please contact the Law Society at 604.669.2533 or 1.800.903.5300 (toll-free within BC) / TTY 604.443.5700.
Hearing decisions that are anonymized pursuant to the Law Society Rules or a request from a third party do not identify individual lawyers. These decisions are therefore not tied to lawyers' profiles in Lawyer Lookup.
Lawyer Lookup includes the names of former members for a period of two years from the date the lawyer ceased to be a member. The names of disbarred members are included indefinitely. To confirm details about a former or disbarred member of the Law Society, such as the location of files, please contact the Law Society at 604.669.2533 or 1.800.903.5300 (toll-free within BC) / TTY 604.443.5700. Lawyer Lookup also includes information about retired lawyers (non-practising members who have practised law at least 20 of the past 25 years) and non-practising lawyers.
